15 Weeks

What's Happening with Peanut?

  • Peanut measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces (about the size of an apple).
  • He/She's busy moving amniotic fluid through his/her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in the lungs begin to develop.
  • Although his/her eyelids are still fused shut, he/she can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at my tummy, for instance, he/she's likely to move away from the beam.

What's Happening with Mama?

  • Total weight gain/loss: 8 pounds
  • Maternity clothes? I am wearing a few items that are maternity but still in the majority of my pre-pregnancy clothes.
  • Sleep: Sleeping was pretty good the past week - other than the up 4 times a night to use the rest room.
  • Best moment this week: Taking Peanut to the Georgia Tech football game - we came from behind in the 4th quarter to win!
  • Food cravings: Mexican
  • Belly button in or out? In.
  • What I miss: Again,I am not missing anything as I am doing everything I did before Peanut.
  • What I am looking forward to: Suprising M all week long with gifts leading up to his 30th birthday on Saturday!

What's Happening with Daddy?

  • Daddy has to open the office this week which means he is up at 4:30 each morning, so he will be quite tired by the end of the day.
  • Next Tuesday marks completion day on the State Patrol office and Daddy can focus all his efforts on the new school he is building.
  • Daddy also turns 30 this week!

Well, you still look great Kimberly! The tummy has finally popped a bit now. Keep up the good work with your nutrition program--only 8 lbs. in 15 weeks is good.

I finally see that little belly starting to exciting!

Happy early birthday to M!
